A New Beginning

Some of you may have noticed (or maybe no one did) that I took a blogging break. It wasn't planned. It just sort of happened. First, I was enjoying some time with Emily while she was home on Christmas break but then I did some reading and studying, a few projects around the cottage and before I knew it, a real break was occurring! And you know what? It felt good! Don't misunderstand. I do enjoy blogging and I am not going to give it up but sometimes you just need to step back and take stock of things and re-balance them. Isn't that traditionally what the New Year is about? So we'll see if anything really looks different on my blog but I can tell you already that my attitude about it is different. Its a case of who owns what and not the other way around.

I noticed, it's good to hear from you, I agree, blogging is something we should control not vice versa. I'm going through a phase of not knowing what to write.

Breaks are good. So say I.

I noticed too, and I'm glad to know that you've been having a good time while you've been away!

I noticed that you posted once a week and then, well, missed...

I'm glad you're back.
